I do have question for y'all. Our refrigator makes a humming/whinning noise. We are being told that this is the fan moving air and that there is nothing wrong and nothing that can be done. The dealer did do some "dampening" with rubber washers but can't tell much difference. Anyone else having an issue?
One word of caution. Wife's oven heats unevenly: front of pan is fine and back will burn bottom. She loves to cook and is moving pan around half way through cooking time until dealer can come up resolution.
Hope you all enjoy yours as much as we are enjoying ours.
westyguy - regarding your refrig noise - we have a 2012 29rk (rear kitchen) with the refrig located at aft left side. We had an annoying noise with the refrig in the electric mode. We brought it back to the dealer and they lubed the motor and called it fixed. We then went on a 3 day trip and the noise, while somewhat lower and less frequent, was still there. I climbed up and removed the upper most lovrer (sp) vent panel and heard the noise coming from the fan motor. I touched the motor and the noise went away for awhile. I brought it back to the dealer and they replaced it. I haven't had the TT out since then, but I will be hoping it is gone. I had the removed fan assy in my hand and turned the blades and tried to detect sideways movement in the shaft, but was unable to detect any movement.
I think that FR has had more issues with this fan motor than they care to admit. There have also been some posters here complaning of the sane thing.
The factory rep told me that the motor manufacturer is now installing rubber gromments between the shelf it sits on and the motor fan.
Can't help with the oven issue as my DW loves ours.
